A Reader's Guide to the JPS Bible Commentary

  • By Laura Lieber
This supplement is perfect for individuals seeking greater understanding of the haftarot as independent literary entities and in the larger context of the Torah cycle and Jewish life; for leaders of adult education groups who wish to focus their study on the haftarot; and for B'nai Mitzvah students preparing their divrei Torah.

While the role of the JPS Haftarot Commentary itself is, in part, to call attention to and explain important details of the text that might otherwise be overlooked and to answer the obvious questions readers will naturally ask, this guide will help those studying the commentary assimilate this newly learned material and assemble insights into a meaningful whole.

For every Torah reading, the guide offers a brief summary of the haftarah and its connection to the parashah (Torah portion), two or three themes, a discussion of the larger religious, literary, and contemporary significance, and questions for further study.
